goBaby launched nationally in December 2016. As of today, we have inventory across 27 states in the US and are growing daily. Please feel free to post your baby item in any US location. If you are looking to rent an item in a location that is currently not available, we encourage you to let us know and we will do our best to find you the item you need!
While you can charge any price you want, here are some Daily Price recommendations for the most popular items:
As the owner, you can choose to deliver your item within a certain mile radius for an extra charge (or for free). You can also make your items available for pick-up by the renter. You will be able to specify delivery/pickup conditions when you post your item.
In the nearest future, goBaby will be offering delivery via integration with several delivery service providers.
Once your item is listed on goBaby, it will be searchable by potential renters. When a renter is interested, they will submit a booking request, which will be delivered to you via email, push notification, and in-system alert. You will review and respond to the request by either accepting or rejecting it. If you accept the booking request, you will be able to provide the renter with delivery/pickup information and notify the system when your items is picked up. You will notify the system again once your item is returned, so that we can process the payment.
goBaby uses Stripe Connect for payment processing. We require that each item owner creates their own Standalone Stripe Account. This way, goBaby never receives the transaction money, instead it gets deposited directly into owner's account. Further, Stripe helps us with Identity Verification and Tax Reporting.
When you list your item, we recommend that you specify a Security Deposit fee that will cover your item in an unlikely event of theft or damage. At present, goBaby does not offer insurance, but we are working on this, and hope to be able to offer extra coverage soon.
We charge item owners a transaction fee of 8%.
